I don't necessarily think car control was Gordon's strength either. Yes he came from dirt but in cup I always think of a guy who was great at preserving and maximizing his stuff, other-worldly under braking (road courses and Martinsville), and consistent lap after lap after lap. So in that sense I do think there's a comparison to be made for Elliott talent-wise. He's really good at a lot of the same things and places.
